The NEFA Foundation has released a second report detailing the structure and activities of the global Muslim Brotherhood in the Benelux countries. This report is entitled “The Muslim Brotherhood in Belgium” and is summarized as follows:
Belgium has become an important center for the global Muslim Brotherhood in Europe. Since its origins in early student organizations, the Belgian Brotherhood network has grown to include Hamas support infrastructure and local Islamic groups that in turn are part of the Federation of Islamic Organizations in Europe (FIOE), the global Muslim Brotherhood umbrella group in Europe. Belgium also serves as the FIOE national office. One individual, Bassem Hatahet, appears to be the most important figure in the Belgian Muslim Brotherhood.
In December 2007, NEFA released the first report on the global Muslim Brotherhood in the Netherlands.
